    I'd like to show you my first attempt of building a kit with a metal finish: Kitty Hawk's F-86D Sabre Dog. Decals are from Zotz Decals, the pilot is from PJ Production.
     

     
    I picked "Big Viv" because I built a similar 1/72 Airfix kit when I was a kid. The tiger mouth was painted (because I messed up the decal) and on the droptank, Viv' herself poses for the camera.
     

     
    The pilot figure is from the Belgian company PJ Production. I had to modify the pilot just a little (he was a bit too wide for the seat) but turned out okay in the end.  
     

     
    This is the first time I did a metal finish, and I still have a lot to learn, but I'm happy with this first attempt. I got the opportunity to build the kit for TMN and here's a link to the construction:

    SinuheH got a reaction from MARU5137 in Tamiya F-4J - rescuing of a hangar queen   
    Hi gents, after starting my F-16, I got the hankering for another jet, and realised that I had a F-4J, which has been languishing on the SOD for around a decade.
    In a sense I would like to dedicate this model to Larry Hawkins, as we discussed it on and off, when I had originally started it.
     

     
    I'll have to see how I can spruce up the pit……. perhaps add two figures…..
     

     

     
    and then I have to settle on a scheme…. probably the bi-centenial Warlords scheme.

    Hey everyone, here's my 1/32 F-4J Phantom inspired by Showtime 100. It's not a 100% accurate build as the markings and load out aren't exact but it's close enough for me. Hope you enjoy!

    Tamiya's Corsair is an incredible kit.
    It features an fantastic level of detail, and the assembly is so precise with no dramas, its a joy to build.
     
    I built the model straight OOB and used Tamiya acrylics to paint her.
    An enjoyable, fun build.

    Howdy folks,
     
    I've just learned the sad news that Dan LoRusso, aka LSP Dan, has passed away. Many of you will be aware that Dan was battling cancer (multiple myeloma), and at one stage had broken his neck due to a tumour on his spine. Consequently, Dan hadn't been very active here at all over the last 2 years. I'm not sure when he died, exactly, but the condolence messages on his Facebook page start appearing on 17 September. His last post as himself was on the 5th.
     
    Dan is now the third LSP staff member we've lost to this dreadful disease, and who knows how many more from the general membership. My thoughts are with his friends and family.
     
    R.I.P. Dan, and thanks for all you've done for us.

    So I have been very quite lately... Lack of modelling mojo really hasn't helped! But finishing this has! Wingnut Wings latest kit, The Post War Bristol Figther...
     
    I used a mixture of Tamiya, Mr Color and Vallejo paints. Wood Grain was done using AK Interactive products. For rigging, I used EZ Line and the RAF Thread that you can get off Wingnut Wings.
     
    Scheme is of the New Zealand Permanent Air Force during the 1930's.

    Hello! I am French, i have 41 years old and I make of the model for approximately 4 years.
    I make only of 1/32
    I have just ended one F-104 A from ITALERI,  I added the Photocut EDUARD for the bay of electronics and the cockpit, and Masterbox 'pitot' for the nose.
    The paint is a try with AK truemétal.
    I hope that he will please you
    This modelkit  will be just in quoted by X-15 in 1/32

    Hello Everyone!
     
    Here in the UK we have been remembering the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. I had wanted to finish this build by 15th September, but the fates denied me that pleasure. Not to worry though, I got there two days later!
     
    This is one of my tribute builds to salute "The Few" and one man who's story that never fails to touch my heart and inspire me. This is my build of Flying Officer Geoffrey Wellum's Spitfire Mk.Ia, K9998. 
     
    For those of you who might not know, Geoffrey Wellum DFC was the youngest fighter pilot in the RAF during the Battle of Britain. He was eighteen years old. He flew all the way through the battle and then onto the siege of Malta in 1942. He published his memoir "First Light" when he was 80 years old and it has widely become known as one of the must-read accounts of the battle. 
     
    I have wanted to build Geoff's 92 Sqn Mk.I a for ages! With the 75th anniversary this year, it seems quite appropriate to dust off Revell's 1/32 Spitfire. M.II. 
    I did a little backdating and a lot of research and I think I have got this one right. We all have our views about this kit, for me it's wonderful. It's a model of a Spitfire! That's all I need! 
     
    With the kit, I also used Barracuda resin, Eduard PE and Xtradecal codes to make K9998 as there is no sheet with these markings currently available. I used Mr. Hobby  RAF Earth/ RAF Dark Green for upper surfaces and Tamiya Sky for the under surfaces. I enjoyed this build immensely and will certainly build another one of these kits in the future, I think they are great! 
     
    I hope you enjoy my tribute to the "The Few". Geoff Wellum once said:  "If you remember one of us, then you must remember all of us"

    Finished Hasegawa Hayate, build here: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=55642&hl=hayateUsed Big-Ed from Eduard, used almost everything except flaps, Just after finishing found Profimodeller brass turned cannon barrels and pitot, it happens..... sometimes.....usually.....  Gunze C exclusively, used masks made by myself so only 5 decals came from the kit, Tamiya enamel washes + mix of oils, Uschi Van Der Rosten antenna wire, the thickest one, but I`m quiet dissatisfied because it`s not round in profile, rather flat, it`s more obvious when painted, I ordered middle one, hope it will be better.
